A landmark located in the capital of the Hunter Region, Ausgrid Stadium, formerly Energy Australia Stadium, is not only the home ground of Newcastle’s two sporting teams, the Newcastle Knights (NRL) and Newcastle Jets (A League) but it is also a modern and competitive functions venue whether it is a small meeting, large conference or a sell out sporting Event.  This Stadium offers something for everyone!

The Eastern Grandstand was upgraded in 2005 with a Lancer Draught Beer Dispensing System installed shortly after. The installation consisted of 5 Bars in the Eastern Grandstand and 1 new bar on the Southern Hill.  All bars had the Lancer Multi-fill Beer Dispensers installed to ensure the venue could cater for high volume dispense of beer to its partrons.

The new Western Grandstand redevelopment was completed in June 2011 and with the latest food and beverage outlets, corporate facilities, upgraded events venue space and the increase in capacity to hold up to 33,000 spectators; Ausgrid Stadium is now competing on an international level.


With the build of the new Western Grandstand, Ken Sangster of Sangster Design was entrusted with the specification of all Catering Equipment including the Draught Beer System and Ice Machines. The Client was looking for a consistent product which could handle any load situation, being a small 100 person function to a 33,000 capacity crowd sporting event.

"The Lancer Beverage system was the only choice, not only do Lancer have the proven track record with having leading beer systems in Hotels, Clubs and the largest Stadiums in the country, they continually lead the industry in all aspects of Beer dispensing.
The way the beer system installation was managed and completed was of an extremely high standard, the outcome was beyond my expectations.
The Multi-fill system was the perfect staff and crowd dispense option.  The ease of use of the system is remarkable."
Ken Sangster, Sangster Design Group
